XP Home on a laptop has buttons jumping

By itek4u ·
Any and all buttons, OK and Cancel among others, will do a weird rapid switching like something is clicking them really fast. It even happens in Safe Mode. Other weird things like windows opening and shutting, or not wanting to shut are happening also. I scanned with AdAware SE, Spybot 1.3, Norton Antivirus 2003 and an online antivirus scanner. Nothing is showing up. They also purchased a new mouse but that didn't stop it. It's driving the end-users crazy. Help!

This is a tech. problem, in search of a solution.

It properly belongs in "Technical Q&A," not in "Discussions." Please re-post there.

Not only will you be more likely to attract the attention of those seeking to provide answers, but you will also make it easier for those seeking discussions to find such.

Thank you.

Wrong forum II

Try Technical Q&A.

It certainly sounds like a stuck mouse button though.

Back off the case screws for the keyboard a turn or two. I've seen this after techs have replaced notebook parts before.

Sounds like a stuck keyboard button or bad mouse cable. I've seen it happen a number of times, same exact symptoms...

And this is not the proper forum for this question, although I can see how you might have thought it was Spyware/Adware related...
